Lythrum Salicaria 'The Beacon'
Spires of rosy-purple flowers are produced for a very long and valuable midsummer period from July until September, when many plants are well over flowering. This lovely plant grows perfectly in ordinary soil, but in a wet spot, or even pond edge will excel.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
